I`m pretty new to linux generally and ubuntu specifically
I have an idea for a business website which needs to be bilinugual
I have been unable to find a web host that provides the services I require along with bilingual hosting
Also I have been unable to get dream weaver to run in linux
So I need to build my own bilingual site as easily as possible
What is the best software to use for simple web building in linux?

vim or, if you prefer a GUI, gedit.

There's Bluefish, which has more wizards and such so that you don't have to write the code yourself, but I've found it to be cumbersome and clunky.

I highly recommend using a content management system such as Joomla, Drupal or Plone. Joomla is ridiculously simple to use and I use it for my personal website hosted at GoDaddy. Plone is complex but can do almost anything you want it to do. I have a Plone site for environmental consulting clients hosted my home computer. I haven't tried Drupal yet, but am about to for work because it may allow me to do forms for a Postgresql database easily, which is something I haven't figured out how to do with the other two systems.

Well what version of Dreamweaver do you use?
Wine can help in this department, by default Ubuntu cannot run windows .exe installers as obviously this isnt windows.
Wine might be able to help you install dreamwaver, but it depends on the version.

I agree about using a CMS, but if you must have an editor with shortcuts, scripts and so forth, you could also try Amaya (http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/BinDist.html). I can't speak to it much as I only use it for article publishing, but it may suit your needs. Make sure to download the Ubuntu *.deb file and install.
Welcome and enjoy or stay!

LoL, quite correct. Open CMS is a horrible way to go for businesses especially, since open CMS are a big target by malicious attackers, cause its open for them to use test, and exploit, b4 adapting it to attacking your site. And im guessing you'd want something like Bluefish or some kind of GUI based, Web Builder etc.. I normally code with scratch but use bluefish for some repititiouse tasks.Aptana i heard is pretty good, heres a link, http://www.aptana.com/ , havn't had a chance to try it myself though.But its a full IDE which i assume is what you are wanting.
